SMArtX Announces 2024 X Award Winners, Featuring Elite Investment Strategies From Top Asset Managers on the SMArtX Platform

Congratulations to the 30 leading investment strategies earning this year’s accolades.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 29  — SMArtX Advisory Solutions (“SMArtX”), a leading innovator in unified managed accounts (UMA) technology, today announced the winners of the SMArtX 2024 X Awards. This annual recognition program, now in its fourth year, honors top-performing strategies within the SMArtX platform’s model marketplace.

“The annual X Awards have become a signature SMArtX tradition,” said Jonathan Pincus, CEO of SMArtX Advisory Solutions. “Our asset manager partners are some of the best in the industry and the X Awards recognize their efforts in achieving excellence.”

Candidates for the Awards are derived from the SMArtX Select List, which ranks asset managers using a proprietary quantitative screening based on a robust four-step methodology:

  1. Ability to generate alpha compared to the strategy peer group benchmark
  2. Favorable risk-adjusted returns that emphasize positive skew
  3. Effective downside and tail-risk management
  4. Consistent return generation

The Awards calculations add an additional metric to this existing quantitative screening, namely performance exclusive to the full previous year. This year, 30 eligible strategies competed with winners ultimately chosen across 10 categories. These categories are grouped by market capitalization, geographic focus, and investment type.
